donthink: Safe Bet

A luscious and vibrant sound was my aim for this mix, titled ‘Safe Bet’ because I wanted to create an introduction to downtempo / electronic music in a way that may captivate and grow interest. To subtly build an unfamiliar atmosphere and give hints of more to explore.

Classical tendencies, strings especially, sweet beats, glitchy cinematic effects and jazzy grooves fill the air. Mixed in 2003 while DJ’ing at ErrorFM as I hoped to inspire people with new music from around the world.

    This mix is probably the best downtempo mix I’ve ever encountered. We’re lucky to have Kyle here at Aurgasm.

    I’m currently going through a divorce, which is never gonna be nice, but this mix totally calmed me down after another round of unreasonable behaviour from the soon to be ex-Dangerspouse….

    Fantastic mix, as usual Aurgasm have sorted me out again!! Cheers.

  19. Carlyndarlyn :

    I’m trying to find the first track “dieci” by xploding plastix. I love it…but where is it from? I’ve looked through their discography and I can’t find it anywhere… Any ideas would be appreciated

  20. Kyle :

    @Carlyndarlyn, “Dieci” is a song from their demo cd that leaked onto the internet before The Donca Matic Singalongs. there was no track listing, and it was track 10, so Dieci i named it. XP informed Aurgasm that the original title is “Rattlechaser” and (edit) it is now available on Amazon ~ thanks @Bizarre

  21. jspanella :

    If the first tract Dieci is ever made available for purchase please post some kind of link. It is really wonderful.

  22. JBZ :

    I linked to your mix, so if it’s not ok just let me know and I’ll remove it. If you’d like to check the specific posting GoTo: http://cad-vs-bim.blogspot.com/2011/02/watching-them-watching-me.html

    Otherwise Thanks in advance!!!

  23. john :

    hey i love this check it if its not for sale whats the deal with maybe a download please could use it on the ipod ya know that site btw is my buddies he is a producer in progress electronic music anyways let me know

  24. Bizarre :

    @jspanella, as Kyle mentioned, the track “Dieci”is called “Rattlechaser” the album it appears on is available on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Devious-Dan-Ep/dp/B003A9A882/
    It’s my favorite track as well. It reminds me of Maurice Ravel’s Bolero.

  25. Shane :

    I found this a few months ago when it was posted and I still listen to it all the time! I’m in the process of looking for some of these artists Fantastic! Thank you for getting me learned
